#Kaala's fight sequences in FIRE & WATER. The sand dispersing on his face signifies the EARTH. The AIR showers the Holi colors around him. Finally the SPACE which Kaala shares among his people.#Kaala expresses five elements of nature! #KaalaTeaserhttps://t.co/ZRiCukMvtMpic.twitter.com/dvRg2ZAjtY— Ian Malcolm (@MrIanMalcolm) March 2, 2018

The makers of Rajinikanth's film released the teaser late night on Thursday - hours before its scheduled time - reportedly to avoid the video being leaked. Soon after its release, the teaser quickly went viral - it remained the top trend on Twitter all of Friday morning and continues to rule YouTube's trending chart of videos with as many as 5 million views in a little over half a day.
In Kaala, Rajinikanth co-stars with Nana Patekar, Huma Qureshi and Samuthirakani and plays the titular slum-lord-turned-gangster in the movie, which is being produced by Dhanush, the veteran actor's son-in-law.
Witness the wrath of Kaala aka Rajinikanth in theatres on April 27.
